Admissions: Programs of Study

Religious Studies

For students majoring or minoring in religious studies, the department offers a wide range of study of the beliefs, practices, and values of Christianity and Judaism as well as other religious traditions. While special attention is given to the Catholic tradition, the offerings are broad enough to benefit you in your own search for religious meaning and for a basis in making ethical decisions. You'll graduate with general knowledge in scripture, morality, sacraments, and spirituality, and perhaps even a background in ministry. You'll be prepared to carry out Marywood's goal for all students: learning to live responsibly in an interdependent world.
